Request for revision by Dutch Meat Association in multiyear debate on meat inspection fee

Meats require prior inspection, before they can be offered for sale. These inspections are subject to government fees charged from the slaughterhouses. The slaughterhouses affiliated with the Dutch Meat Association (COV) do not agree with the fees the government charges from them. Invoking inter alia case law of the European Court of Justice and an advice by the Council of State, COV requested the government to carefully revise its objections raised in the year 2008.

COV is assisted by Defares.
